Stephanie was born and raised in Goshen, Indiana, and comes from a big family of 10! She says that family is her heart, and her work is her life. Any free time that she does get away from the office is typically spent walking her pups or hiking some trails. She loves the outdoors and takes advantage of every opportunity to be out in nature! She’s also a huge animal lover and will pet any creature that allows her to.  

We all bring certain gifts to the table in our area of expertise, and Stephanie says hers are knowledge, experience, love, compassion, and leadership. When asked to share some encouraging words to other women business owners, Stephanie said,

“Always be willing to be stronger than your strongest excuse! Remember each day is a process. I ask the Lord daily to give me strength and guide me throughout the day.”
